Work begins on multi-million pound library redevelopment in Hastings

Work has begun on an £8million project to provide a modern library and registration service for the people of Hastings. Planning permission and listed building consent have been granted, giving East Sussex County Council the green light to develop the existing facility in the Brassey Institute and expand into the building next door, 12 Claremont.

Libraries services – use them or lose them!

East Sussex County Council is at an advanced consultation stage for its project to improve library services in Hastings by means of a major refurbishment of the existing central library at the Brassey Institute and the next door premises at 12 Claremont which would bring together the children’s and adult library under one roof. With falling library visitors seemingly a long term trend, it is important that Hastings people focus on why they need library services in the 21st century and express their views as to how these facilities may be used more effectively – use them (or lose them!). The Music Libraries Action Group (MULAG) has a vision that deserves consideration, thinks Chris Cormack.
